Jennifer Lopez is leaving American Idol after just two seasons, it appears. ”There is just too much going on for her right now,” a source told Us Weekly. ”She regrets she can’t stay on the show. It’s been an incredible experience and she is forever grateful that she did it.”
Idol earned Lopez $20, which placed her at the top of the Forbes 2012 list of most powerful celebrities. In addition, Lopez signed deals with Gillette and L’Oreal, so the Fox reality show has only done wonders for Lopez’s career. A little part of me thinks she is jumping ship just as things are getting good.
Lopez will go on tour with Enrique Iglesias this summer, and she stars in the upcoming comedy, What To Expect When You’re Expecting. Us Weekly reports that she is also recording a new album and has a few films in the works, including Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.
Do you think it’s a good move for Lopez to leave Idol?
